CASAA’s Kristin Noll-Marsh calls out anti-tobacco organizations for opposing minor’s bans and then using the absence of legislation as an excuse to restrict adult use.
CASAA Vice President Kristin Noll-Marsh notes, “Consumers and industry are in complete agreement in supporting bans on sales to minors. Unfortunately, some anti-tobacco organizations have endeavored to block such bans and then use the absence of restrictions on sales to youth as an excuse to ban sales to adults. They do this even though cigarettes are legal and widely available. The sad truth is that children who want to smoke have no trouble acquiring cigarettes.”
